I am a research student at Coventry University working on E2E Network Slicing (2022-).

I was with the Router R&D Dept. of SINA Communication Systems, Tehran, Iran (2021-2022) as a network solutions expert. Moreover, I worked as a network performance tools engineer at RighTel Communications, Tehran, Iran (2020-2021).

Regarding my academic background, I'm a Software Engineering M.Sc. graduate from Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran (2017-2020). My research activities include 5G (focusing on core networks), NFV, SDN, Resource Allocation, and Network Slicing. I also collaborated on a research project about migrating to 5G mobile networks for the Mobile Telecommunication Company of Iran (MCI) (2018-2019).

Title: A Resource Allocation Method for Network Slicing in Software-Defined 5G Networks



Network slicing is a crucial part of the 5G networks that communication service providers (CSPs) seek to deploy. By exploiting three main enabling technologies, namely, software-defined networking (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV), and network slicing, communication services can be served to the end-users in an efficient, scalable, and flexible manner. To adopt these technologies, what is highly important is how to allocate the resources and admit the customers of the CSPs based on the predefined criteria and available resources.

 In this regard, we propose a novel joint resource and admission management algorithm for slice-enabled networks. In the proposed algorithm, our target is to minimize the power consumption cost of cloud nodes and the bandwidth consumption cost of the CSP subject to the slice requests received from the tenants corresponding to the virtual machines and virtual links constraints. Our performance evaluation of the proposed method shows its efficiency in managing CSP's resources.
